8:00pm
welcome to "red eye." danny levy has been arrested for loitering in a local park dressed as a giant cat. what do you expect. let's welcome our guests. she's so sharp, she sneezes razor blades. beware when she has allergies because people die. i'm here with ann coulter. her recent book is called "mugged." the history of hot chocolate. it comedian tom shillue.
8:01pm
his latest cd is called "in vogue." bill shultz has the day off, getting his monthly delousing. filling in is andy levy. there he is. and he's so cool, he sweats ice cubes. i was going to use a different ver v verb, but it's 11:00. and sitting next to me, rick "sexy" leventhal. >> at anybody know what's on the spike channel right now? >> very funny. if you're tweeting, this is a temporary studio or is it? thanks for taking that wide shot, by the way. he's bummed over bam. yep, matt damon, if that's his real name, says he feels like president obama has dumped him. here's the former fan discussing the president with bet. >> he broke up with me. there are a lot of things i really question, you know, the
8:02pm
legality of the drone strikes and the nsa revelations are -- you know, it's like -- you know, jimmy carter came out and said we don't live in a democracy. and that's a little -- that's a little intense when an ex-president says that. so, you know, he's got some explaining to do. particularly for a constitutional law professor. >> must have. blue shirt day on bet. anyway, on friday, obama called a press conference to address his relationship with damon directly. >> we have conversations. they're candid, they're blunt. often times they're constructive. i know the press likes to focus on body language, and he's got that kind of slouch, looking like the bored kid in the back of the classroom, but the truth is that when we're in conversations together, often times it's very productive. >> that's exactly what you say
8:03pm
when you dump somebody. oh, you know, it's actually not so bad. because you're not the one profess dumped, president obama. you know what's not very productive, interrupting a guy's workout. >> president obama is the guy doing push-ups and the cat is matt damon trying to get back in his life. and right now, ben affleck is at home saying matt, matt! >> that's how i did this, by the way. i was doing push-ups. >> and a cat actually attacked you. >> those weren't actually push-ups. those were like three-quarters push-up. >> only because he didn't want to crush the cat. he's not a cat crusher. leventhal, you have dumped thousands of women in your time. you're probably dumping one
8:04pm
right now while we're doing the show. breakups are hard. who do you think is dealing with this hard? barack obama or matt damon. >> i like how matt damon said he broke up with me. not i broke up with him. did president obama think about matt damon, i' not going to think about -- >> yes! he responded to this. >> yes, he did. >> he did think about this. that's the horrible thing about this story. and i would just like to point out before making this point, i sdo n do not make fun of obama for all his vacations. but responding to matt damon -- >> you know he wasn't really responding to matt damon. >> no, but he did. >> he said right back at you. >> he did that at the k corresponde correspondent's dinner. >> he responded to this when he said here, this was years ago. >> it was a funny setup that greg just did. i'm not commenting on the joke
8:05pm
now. i'm commenting on the reality. reality is he said right back at you. i saw his latest movie. this is a guy who goes to talk about serious policy issues like the nsa and russia on the jay leno show and now he's getting in this "mean girls" spat with matt damon. >> can obama do anything to win damon back? maybe a big gesture like anti-joan strikes. or maybe leaving michelle. >> why should he be a one-term president. the way that shows you the way these totalitarians think. they know the country is against what matt damon thinks. if we could only do what matt damon wanted, of course he would be voted oit of office. nobody likes what matt damon likes. >> that's such a perceptive with thought coming from you. it's actually shocking me.
8:06pm
andy, damon soured on obama back in 2011. do you applaud him for speaking his mind now when you know there's no chance for re-election? >> here's my problem, harry reid came out on friday -- >> he's gay? >> yes. but in addition to that, he also said that -- he said something about he hopes the tea party's opposition to obama isn't because he's black. >> he did not. >> he did. i feel kind of the same way for matt damon. i'm worried that he's disappointed in obama because he's black. he questions the legality. really? he's doing illegal stuff because he's black? >> he was talking about.
8:07pm
>> when that gets translated being married into a russian, that would be translated into putin is a little sulky boy. he'll say this is it, this is it and things will happen. >> he'll press the red button? >> it's all about the translation of things. and the translation from russian to english is never smooth at all. >> i could go on for hours. by the way, you know, damon has no proof of the effectiveness of his beliefs. so he abandons obama, but he also abandoned public education. so in a sense, he's a deserter. >> his character he goes up to where the rich people live and he runs into -- his kids are actually in school up there. >> you know what i mean --
8:08pm
>> much better as a panelist. >> instead of yelling at you? >> yes. >> isn't that nice. >> glad that you're here. nobody gets your jokes. >> matt damon speaks the truth, noug. this was an apt metaphor when he talks about a breakup because all along for hollywood, this has been a romance. they are in love with obama, so when they don't do what h he wants, it is like a breakup. >> but he has a romance for them, too. when he has important policies to discuss, he goes on leno. he's seen matt damon's movie. and when matt damon insults him, he insults him back. that's crazy. >> do we care about the press conference. it's now saturday. would you just want to move on? because frankly, i don't care. i watched the press conference. i feel asleep and i woke up and my pants were gone. >> what press conference? >> not press conference, the presser. from today. yesterday. >> because snowden as finally
8:09pm
gotten under the president's sk skin. >> from breakups to shake-ups, the nsa plans to stop future disclosures by cuttinged a min stray tors by 90%. that's 9 out of 10, or 90 out of 100. on thursday, the director general said they will be relying more on machines. those are those things made of metal, instead of people to transfer secure data. yes, more jobs killed by pro. keith alexander, proud homer and head of the nsa said computers do it faster and better. and they don't have certain vulnerabilities. >> we trust people with data. at the end of the day, it's all about trust. and people who have access to data, it's part of their mission if they misuse that trust can cause huge damage. >> meanwhile, there is snowden?
8:10pm
his escape hasn't been without obstacles. take a look. >> shoo. >> that ram is a true patriot. >> that's how i did this. yeah. that was it. >> andy, they never take the shot. computers do the job faster and better, but do they really care. >> that's the thing, i don't think that this person has seen battle star gallactica. do things better, then they go to war with you then
8:11pm
civilization ends. >> which part of the hot blond making out with you are you forgetting? >> when she makes out with you, you lose your senses. >> go on. >> man, this studio has changed people. do you feel better now about everything. or the opposite? worse about nothing. the comments by the nsa director? >> it doesn't really make me feel better. this whole nsa thing has me totally paranoid. i feel like hundreds of thousands, maybe a million people are watching many e. >> nice. they're not. i would say more than 750,000. >> that's what i feel like. >> rick, i bet a lot of soon to be unemployed systems analysts are pissed at snowden. don't you think enough people hate him already and now people are going to lose jobs. >> not "battle star gallactica." it's the terminator. man is replaced by machines.
8:12pm
machines wage war on earth and machines take over the earth. and erase the human race. so thanks a lot, edward snowden, because i've seen "the terminator" movie. it doesn't end well. when the machines take over, we're dead. >> you know, andy, you really don't e-mail anybody except the editor of "cat fancy." are you less concerned about machines reading your e-mails? >> it's not the terminator, i think it's the may trick. look, i don't want anyone or anything reading my e-mails except the people or ma sheeps that i'm sending them to. to me, this should be no difference than the post office opening letters if i wrote letters at the post office. i'm just old fashioned that way. i don't think anyone should be reading my private stuff. >> but i don't think they are reading it. i think it's like -- i would use the metaphor the post man looking at your address. and opening up your letter. >> they're already looking -- google is already looking at me.
8:13pm
i said this last week. well lees in shorts i search for them and i get everything all over the internet. wellington boots, shorts. >> i thought it was just some perverse website. >> if you do a web search, then you see the fruits of your web search all day the next day. >> and you can turn that off, but it's actually very convenient having those ads. >> clear history, by the way? >> so you like it, everybody likes it. it helps you. >> not everybody. >> i do. >> it freaks me out, but it's very convenient. >> yeah, this could be a new bigotry against humans, kind of a humanist, preferring machines over humans. but that's a story for another time. is weiner getting meaner with his poll numbers sagging? anthony weiner seems to be coming a bit unglued on the campaign trail. earlier this week, he called an older candidate grandpa. on thursday night, he berated
8:14pm
staffer for not organizing his papers the way he wanted. this guy is a jerk. he said this is no good the way you have this organized. this is ng -- not great, not great. if you use an acronym, then say what it means. he mimicked a british reporter's accent. he said it's hard to take you seriously. i feel like i stepped into a monty python movie. meanwhile, weiner only has the support of 10% of city voters. and his former sexting partner has endorsed his opponent christine quinn. despite the setbacks, weiner's campaign is putting on a brave face. >> smile. >> pretty smile. >> pretty smile. >> can you smile? >> even he's upset by this whole
8:15pm
mess. weiner know he's not going to win so he says whatever the hell he wants. >> i officially feel bad for anthony weiner. >> yeah? >> yes. i mean, it's so hard to run a campaign as it is, and he is up against so much. number one, he's a jerk. it's hard. and he's a pervert. you become a jerk when you enter politicsw politicsw any way. it's making it very difficult for him. >> that makes you feel sorry for him? >> everything he does has the element of jerk in it. >> the thing is, you know, when you look at this video, people look at it and say he's really getting bad now. but he was always this way. look at his interviews. he's all been a jerk. >> i'm sorry, i think this is fantastic. i agree, he doesn't care at all. he we are a day or two away from him dropping f-bombs in campaign events. this is fantastic. >> i don't know, anne, you liked him, didn't you? >> oh, huge fan, huge fan.
8:16pm
>> of his picture? >> i think he's now trying to get actually get no votes in this election. but in his defense on those, the insulting the staffer and the british tv reporter, he did accepted them apologies along with a selfie. >> those selfies should be part of something, right? because they'll be a part of s history. >> this isn't president clinton. >> by the way, ng? >> stop trying to be hip. try to talk to your young staffers and use abbreviations. >> and then explain them. >> this is ng, dude. that's not a thing. >> he is just stunted. everything he does is stunt conversations with people, he wants to be young. he's a stunted individual. but he could be incredibly entertaining as a politician because he no longer cares. the only problem is he has -- he
8:17pm
has no interest in policies. he's just a big weiner. al >> also the monty python reference? how about downtown abby. >> and there was nothing about it that was like monty python. it does show you humor is harder than it looks, anthony. >> filner got out of his rehab today. >> oh, good. >> do you think he's cured? >> i don't even know who you're talking about. . >> the mayor fillner. >> i didn't get to weigh in on weiner. >> go for it. >> i can't really talk about it. >> you know him, don't you? >> no. >> you've never met him in your years in new york, the weird sexy parties you go to. >> i feel bad for the other candidates. they're not getting any face time. everyone is obsessed with this guy. >> i think that's good for them. >> the more you know, the less you grow. >> maybe.
8:18pm
>> whatever that means. >> i am glad that mayor fillner got out a week early from his sex rehab. he can get back to the people's business that they was elected to perform. >> groping innocent women. >> weaner is pur er ier is cure? >> aren't you supposed to be cured immediately like don't do it again? >> by the way, boxer has called him to resign. >> nancy pelosi hasn't. >> by monday, there will be a call. >> i just picturing him now still groping women, but at the same time whispering, i now know this is wrong. >> can i just say one thing about that? i think the reason he may not resooip, it all goes back to teddy kennedy. he killed a girl. and all these other democrats say screw it, i'm staying in. >> everything seems like nothing when you compare it. that's a downer. coming up, what is the most nutritional food you can eat to
8:19pm
stay young and healthy? we discuss ann coulter's new book "i eat the entrails of liberals." colonel waffle taco saved the universe from its ultimate destruction. geoff: i'm the kind of guy who doesn't like being sold to. the last thing i wanis to feel like someone is giving me a sales pitch, especially when it comes to my investments. you want a broker you can trust. a lot of guys at the other firms seemed more focused on selling than their clients. that's why i stopped working at my old brokerage and became a financial consultant with charles schwab. avo: what kind of financial consultant are you looking for? talk to us today.
8:20pm

8:22pm
>> does their waffle sound awful? or save our dying economy. taco bell is get into the breakfast game with a menu of something called the waffle taco. their cheap food innovation
8:23pm
officer describes it thusly, it's a waffle wrapped around all the goodness of breakfast. great. and then you put the syrup on top. that's like my honeymoon. other a.m. delights include a steak and eggs burr rit know. and a breakfast drink that consists of 5% orange juice and the rest is mountain dew, topped off with the head of a squirrel. you know who's most excited about the new menu? the taco bell chihuahua. >> i think that's funny. that just basically reminds me of me at a supermarket trying to get something off the shelf. necessary. rick. do you agree, do you need jobs to make tacos? >> i had a burrito bowl for breakfast. it was really good. >> that's your answer?
8:24pm
somebody made that that's my point. it's a job. >> that's fantastic. is this really a story? a waffle taco? >> this is probably the biggest story of the night, my friend. how dare you question my story selection. >> it looked good. >> unlike you right now. >> ann, everyone rags on fast food. at least it's innovative in its products. the government doesn't make waffle taco. if the government tried to make waffle tacos they would make it out of soap. >> and it would be $1,000. i just want to throw on for the record, i only complained about the stories once the last time i did the show. i never complained about the stories. i think this is an excellent story. and i have an important point to make. they've got to stop cutting off the breakfast. some of us are late sleepers. is it that hard -- i don't care if it's been sitting there for
8:25pm
six hours. i want a mcmuffin and i'm sorry, i just got up and it's 2:00 p.m. >> breakfast at lumpbl is tnch greatest thing. do you think obama should be impeached? >> i was going to be an impassioned speech about the very subject that ann brought up. and you agreed and andy seems to agree. i don't know, you love having chicken for breakfast which is very strange. what was the meat you had in your -- >> chicken. >> now, that's weird. we don't want to eat chicken for breakfast. but the thing is, these fast food companies, they know what the customers want. checkout time is noon, all right? and so i get up at 11:40 and all there are are hamburgers all over the streets. >> right. all over the streets. >> i want an egg and a biscuit. >> this is why you need to buy a house. >> see, this is the most important story we've ever done, greg. >> andy, you're just going to
8:26pm
bed when taco bell opens for breakfast. >> exactly. >> so you'll never have a waffle taco. >> they're starting to roll out the late night breakfast, after midnight. here's the only reason i like this thing. there's no cheese on it. >> you don't like cheese? >> except for pizza. and i'm lactose intolerant because i'm jewish. it's a drag to have to order things with no cheese. i'm shocked, though, nobody makes -- no fast food place makes things with no cheese anymore. they must have screwed that up and now i'm afraid by talking about it, they will put cheese on it. >> it's interesting, what i find, we had this amazing boom in natural gas that the media is not touching but they'll say something about this which leads to natural gas and great jobs. people instead denigrate fast food as the lower runwrung, but it's the only way to get up the ladder. >> hamburger flipping is a
8:27pm
really bad job. you know what a really good job is? serving coffee at starbucks. >> the bottom wrung ouft ladder provides training for people who want to move up. >> what are the hours of the waffle taco? >> i don't know. i didn't really read the story. but i felt strongly enough about it that i didn't have to read it. >> they might serve it all day long. >> they don't. >> they might. >> they don't. >> have you seen this hamburger between two freud ramen buns. some guy in brooklyn just developed it. i'm very interested in this. this sounds amazing. >> but the buried part of the story is the breakfast drink is 5% orange juice and 95% mountain dew. that's a sick joke. >> it's nice that you decided to say something. didn't care about the show or
8:28pm
the story. that's why he's a foreign correspondent. is there anything sexier than an island full of sexy natives covered in oil and whipped cream? rick leventhal shows us his vacation pictures. but first -- president obama is about to leave for martha's vineyard, which races the question, is he a war criminal? the answer is no, but it was in the prompter. zz? not so much. so i'm taking pantene's 72-hour dare.
